On April 12 1961, Soviet fighter pilot and cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin blasted off into space not knowing what fate awaited him. He was one of the legendary top twenty men selected for a mission wrought with danger and whose bravery knew no bounds in his quest to become the first man in space. Gagarin tells the story of one of modern history s greatest pioneers, and of the Russian space team whose untiring efforts and determination led to the conquering of the unknown.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For Space Lovers! 31 May 2014
I have always been fascinated with space and astronomy ever since I was a kid - who hasn't dreamt of being an astronaut?! So when I heard about this new film, based on the first person ever in space, I had to check it out! And it was great!

A must for anyone into astronomy or space, the film takes a look at the dangerous mission into the unknown and the build up and problems that were faced throughout. Some stunning moments that really stand out - it's easily one of the best movies I've seen about Space Exploration and is well worth taking a look at.

Perfect for fans of sci-fi and those with a love for the stars. Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well crafted movie 30 Jun 2014
Having first visited Moscow in 1973 and being blown away by the amazing Monument to Space - a silver rocket shooting up into the sky, I went back 30 years later and visited the space museum - So overawed how small the Gagarin capsule was, and when I drove past the Gagarin statue sometime later - was intrigued to find out more. Forgot all about it until I watched this - what a treat, and no hype - a great story well told

4.0 out of 5 stars Yuri Gagarin - Icon of the 20th century 3 Aug 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
A compelling biopic into the events leading up to Yuri Gagarin's historic mission into space in 1961. It shows the early life of Gagarin under the Nazis, his humble background, his fight to be accepted into the Russian air force and his eventual selection for the Soviet space programme. The choice of Yaroslav Zhalnin as the young leading actor is inspired because of his uncanny likeness to Gagarin who was known for his enigmatic smile. It also gives a fresh insight into the so-called 'space race' with the United States from the Soviet perspective. A very watchable movie with some great space moments showing just how precarious space travel was in those early days - Vostok 1 was nothing more than a ballistic missile with a command module added! The movie runs for 108 minutes (the same time to the minute that Gagarin orbited in space). It's also the first full movie to sanctioned by Gagarin's family after his death in 1968 aged just 34 after a tragic plane accident. If ever there was a 'Hero of the Soviet Union' it's this guy! He remains one of the most important icons of the 20th century. Don't be put off by the movie subtitles, it's worth the effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made. Recommended 15 July 2014

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well made movie. Special effects of the Vostok in orbit very nice and give the realism of the operations made by Gagarin in the capsule. Also the reconstruction of the Vostok is very realistic
Storyline well cared and fitted with the life of Yuri.

Although a Russian film with subtitles, this was no barrier to enjoying this film of the life of a remarkable man. In fact, the all-Russian cast added to the authenticity of this film
